How well does the Genesis emulator work on the DSi XL or is it totally crap
There is only one Genesis emulator for the DS (There is no homebrew for the DSi (that is useful to an average user)), and that is jEnesisDS. It works relatively well with what little I've tried, but has some scaling issues that make most games look rather bad.
I'm not too sure about it's overall compatibility.
Do note though that larger roms DO NOT boot. I don't know exactly what size it was, but one example of a too big rom is " Mega Man - The Wily Wars" (tested it myself). This is due to hardware limitations of the DS, although the DSi has more ram, there is currently no DSi flashcart that can fully utilize the DSi's capabilities and therefore it is locked to " DS mode" which only has the capabilities of a normal DS .
The DSTWO might be able to handle that, but currently there is no DSTWO Genesis emulator
S&K+Sonic3 is another that doesn't work due to size.
There's actually two. PicoDriveDS is also available. It doesn't support sound, although it kinda makes up for it by being open-sourced (because we all know that jEnesisDS is closed source and that it's dev went on to help make Sonic Classic Collection).
